WASHINGTON President Barack Obama has met with the leader of the Mormon church.

Obama and the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Thomas S. Monson, met in the Oval Office on Monday. Monson gave Obama a detailed genealogical history, as the church has done for other U.S. presidents.

Obama says he is grateful for the records and that he looks forward to reading through the material with his two daughters. He says his family will treasure the records for years to come.

It was the first face-to-face meeting between Monson and Obama.
